The siddur exemplifies Koren’s traditions of textual accuracy and intuitive graphic design. It offers an illuminating translation, introduction, and commentary by one of the world’s leading Jewish thinkers, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
It is the only Orthodox siddur that includes: prayers for the state of Israel, its soldiers, and national holidays, and a halakhic guide for visitors; prayers following childbirth and upon the birth of a daughter; a modern translation, and citations of modern authorities. It also includes prayers for the American and Canadian governments.
You will love using this siddur for your weekday prayers with a festive cover by renowned Jerusalem artist Yair Emanuel.

Koren books use two fonts created by Koren Publishers Jerusalem founder Eliyahu Koren: Koren Tanakh Font and Koren Siddur Font. Koren Tanakh Font, designed to print The Koren Tanakh in 1962, is used for Koren biblical texts. Koren Siddur Font, created for The Koren Siddur in 1981, is used for other texts. Mr. Koren studied and re-studied Hebrew manuscripts and early printing types, consulted with ophthalmologists, and took a sensitive approach to modernization to create fonts of ultimate legibility and beauty. Both fonts are © Copyright Koren Publishers Jerusalem Ltd.
Koren Sacks Weekday Siddur – Yair Emanuel
Rabbi Steinsaltz has written more than 60 books and hundreds of articles, established the Makor Chaim network of schools in Israel and the former Soviet Union, and holds several honorary degrees, including the Israel Prize for Jewish Studies and Israel’s first President’s Prize. He was born in Jerusalem IN 1934 and passed from this world in 2020.
The impact that Rabbi Steinsaltz, of blessed memory, had in spreading the learning of Torah, enhancing the understanding of our texts and religion, bringing Jews closer to their God and their faith cannot be overstated.
Rabbi Steinsaltz’s translations and commentaries of Tanakh and many more Jewish texts have placed him as perhaps the most prolific commentator of Jewish texts in history, drawing a comparison to Rashi. His countless other works on Jewish thought, Hassidut, philosophy, and more have touched the souls of thousands and have already taken their place among the core texts of modern Jewish thought.
